Current Cream Blush Passion, Chanel Les Beige Healthy Glow Sheer Color Sticks ($45 each)

good morning gorgeous. Happy Saturday to you. how was your week? Mine was long and full of SO. excess. Adult. Growing up is a lot harder than being portrayed in ’80s sitcoms. Laugh out loud! Needless to say, I’m glad the weekend is finally here, and yes! The heatwave that engulfed Northern California is now officially over. I woke up this morning to a gorgeous cloudy sky and 70 degree temperatures, and it was the best thing ever.

On a beauty-related note, I’ve been thinking about blush a lot lately. It’s one of my favorite makeup things, and you know, I never get tired of it. I love all the textures and finishes and formulas, and oh, the colors. so many! All this week I’ve felt stretched to my limits between work, parenting, and life, but whenever I took a minute to apply a little blush, I felt better. Blush has that power!

One blush a day?

There’s just something about having a beautiful flush of color on my cheeks that makes me feel good. Plus, it’s an easy boost, you know? For example, I don’t have the application challenges that come with eyeshadow or eyeliner on my progressively more hooded lids. I can swipe just a little and in less than 30 seconds, I feel like a completely different person.

Would it be weird to have a beauty blog that just talks about blush? Because to be honest, I could talk about it all day, every day.

Most of the blushes in my current collection are entering “vintage” territory, so I don’t mind doing a bigger blush refresh. I went to Sephora yesterday and considered old standbys I know and love, like NARS Deep Throat and Hourglass Ambiente, but I think it’s time for some new things.

If you have a blush you’re crushing on right now, please let me know in the comments.

Glasses, Bob…

Channel all day!

love this.

I have a friend who keeps talking about this brand, so I’m going to do some research.



Because I never get tired of learning about sunscreen.

I’m going to make another Nespresso because it’s the weekend, and now my thought of going wild is drinking two coffee drinks on Saturday. May your whole day be peaceful.
